Configuring Hardware Routing for a vRouter
Create interfaces on hardware routers and map them to virtual NICs in the vRouter zone. Currently, only one hardware vRouter is supported with .
Netvisor ONE supports the following protocols:
OSPF — OSPF does not use a TCP/IP transport protocol such as UDP or TCP, but is encapsulated in the IP datagram with protocol number 89. OSPF uses multicast addressing for route flooding on a broadcast domain. For nonbroadcast network, special provisions in the configuration facilitate neighbor discovery. OSPF reserves the multicast addresses for IPv4 or FF02::5/6 for IPv6.
BGP — BGP uses TCP and port number 179
RIP — uses the following parameters:
l RIPv1 — IPv4 uses UDP and port 520, and advertise address - broadcasting
l RIPv2 — IPv4 uses UDP and port 520, and advertise address -
l RIPng — IPv6 uses UDP and port 521, and advertise address - FF02::9
PIM — IPv4 uses protocol 103 with multicast address
To create a hardware router on a vRouter, hwtest, use the following command:
CLI network-admin@Leaf1 > vrouter-create hwtest router-type hardware
Use the same commands as software routing to add protocols and interfaces.
